Yep, really glad I bought a season pass this year. Just over a month to go and it'll be open. Looks very fast.

What a sweet looking ride! But oh boy, that barrel roll looks INTENSE!!!

This is going to be one heck of a ride! That drop looks like it will be insane in the back seat (and every seat).

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Wow. Yesterday I thought "I think I'm more excited by those new photos than I should be," but now, I feel completely justified. Each has managed to be better than the last, and they started at level Amazing. The one with the train coming out of the inversion might be one of the most incredible coaster pics I've ever seen.

Looks like SDC has a winner here--a perfect addition to their already damn good collection of rather eccentric coasters.

Beware of the freeze-dried donkey!
